Baby sewing inspiration

Are you looking for sewing ideas for your sweet little baby or maybe as a gift for a friend? Look no further, here are a few easy pieces you can quickly whip up.

A word of caution, though, these are super super cute and you will be tempted to want to make them all, right now! As usual, when I started sewing baby clothes, I wanted to make everything, which got exhausting…so even if the temptation is there, don’t try to do it all.

Pick a few easy patterns and make a few special pieces. Here is what I made:

Butterick 3405: I made these with my Liberty print scraps from Purl Soho (similar here). I have a matching skirt and dress, so we will be able to wear the same clothes!!! (I know, I know…)

Shwin&Shwin Baby Knit Pants: I made these with some lovely knit material (I think it’s April Rhodes) that I bought at Fabrications. They are just too cute. In my opinion, it’s worth it to take the extra few minutes and make the elastic casing.

Rae’s Basic Baby Pant: This is an adorable woven material pattern by the fantastic Made by Rae and again, super easy. I french seamed it all, which is overkill, but looks amazing. These will be great with a little onesie this summer.

Burda Magazine 2/2016 Undershirt #145: This is a jem of a little pattern. There are only three pieces and you get to play with your double needle. The material is a double knit japanese cotton from Fabrications. For the hat, I was inspired by a Baby Gap hat that my retired boss gave me 🙂

Sew Much Ado’s Infant Peasant Dress: I could make these all day. They are so adorable. I added some rick-rack and some decorative stitches with my Janome Magnolia and I love the result. The fabric is from Fabricworm and Fabrications.
